What To Make With This Filet Crochet Chart
The pattern as shown creates a rectangular shape (with approximate sizes as described above). This could be used to make a table runner, window curtain or blanket. Multiple panels could be sewn together to achieve the desired size for a larger afghan. Work it in a white or cream thread for a vintage appearance or in more colorful yarn for a contemporary design. The chart is intended to be worked through once but it could be repeated for a longer vertical design.
